Today, there is evidence that factors such as particulate matter in the air, noise and ground-level ozone damage the health of thousands of people every year. Thousands of man-made chemicals, including pesticides, persist in the environment, accumulating over time and we do not know enough about their long-term effect on our health. Although a range of specific policy actions are being taken to address those problems, by themselves they are not sufficient to deal with the complex, cumulative interaction between our environment and our health. Many acute environment and health related problems have been solved, but much remains to be done, in particular with respect to the health implication of chronic exposures, as reported by organisations such as the European Environmental Agency, WHO and a number of national organisations. They indicate that the interaction between environment and health is far more complex than is commonly understood. In particular, little attention has been paid to the interaction of different pollutants in the human body as well as in the environment. Even low level exposure over a period of time to a complex cocktail of pollutants in air, water, food and consumer products is likely to contribute significantly to the health status of European citizens.

! TAX MEAT ! Argues that America's meatbased diet costs the country billions of dollars in health care costs and environmental destruction, so it's time for an excise tax on meat. http://www.taxmeat.com
Extractions: Eating animal products is harmful to human health. People who eat meat are at least 30 percent more likely to die of a heart attack, 40 percent more likely to get cancer, and at increased risk for many other diseases and illnesses, including stroke, obesity, appendicitis, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, and food poisoning. Additionally, meat contains accumulations of pesticides and other chemicals up to 14 times more concentrated than those found in plant foods. Today's factory farms use everything but the "moo" and the "cluck"-and in the process they leave behind an environmental toll that generations to come will be forced to pay. Raising animals for food requires more than half the water used in the United States each year and one-third of all raw materials, including fossil fuels. The meat industry is the single greatest polluter of our waterways and is directly responsible for 85 percent of US soil erosion. America's meat addiction is steadily poisoning and depleting our land, water, and air. Human beings aren't the only ones who suffer as a result of America's meat-based diet. 26 billion animals are killed for food every year in this country-more than 4 times the human population of the planet! Because the only federal law protecting farmed animals (which only covers them at the slaughterhouse) is so lax (or in the case of chickens, turkeys, and fish, doesn't exist at all), they suffer from extreme forms of abuse and neglect, from intensive confinement to forced starvation to body mutilations like debeaking, castration and dehorning without painkillers. A tax on meat would encourage people to think twice before supporting blatant cruelty to animals.
